    I'm not usually a fan of Custom Shop guitars, but the new Ed Sheeran model is pretty awesome. I never knew that he was a big Tele user, because I have only seen him use his acoustics. That said, this is a classic design and has some really unique features he requested in regards to scale length.

    That's probably the best signature guitar I've ever seen. Now the question is, would you buy this if it meant you never had to hear his music again? I know I would.

    It's perfectly sized for his ginger baby hands

    That would be my fidget spinner equivalent.
    I'd carry that in a conference room & have at it while the meeting is going on.
    Probably why I never got one of those fidget spinners, I'd get in too much trouble.

    Ok, so I've been considering a custom build based on this design all day from FCS.
    Neck bucker, MOP inlay (side markers confuse me), Bigsby and all gold hardware with a James Burton "flame" paint job.
    What do you think?

    I would 100% buy one but it needs better top fret access. What BKPs would folks recommend because I never like stock pickups.

    Yeah, the lower cutaway only gives you aXXess to half of the 3rd fret....

    Obviously you would need some Ragnaroks, and some bridge-cable thickness flatwound strings.

    I work doing wedding videos..... 95% of the weddings use at least one or more of the same fucking 4 songs

    and since Im editing video I cant get away from it for half of the editing process. The other half I blast some Meshuggah to try to compensate for it :lol:


    not that his songs are bad, but when you listen them 1271274127097 times it drives you nuts. Thank god for metal
